Question Handbrake cables stretched

I have a 1989 SK410 AU Super Carry converted to electric and it has passed the electrical inspection (AS3000/2000) and is now up to the engineers inspection. The handbrake cables are stretched beyond the adjustment range. Is this a common problem? I have ordered two new cables to fit the Holden Scurry, the AU model, from Omni in Mumbai so hopefully this will fix it. The problem is made worse because of the fact that DC electric motors give full torque at 1 rpm, and as the vehicle was registered as electric until 2009, this has likely caused the cables to stretch by the driver forgetting to release the handbrake . Has anyone experienced this problem? ( the front and rear cables were very cheap; $72au including delivery)

Too late I guess, but there is a device on the market designed to shorten the effective cable length.

Thank you for your reply. Yes, I have used a similar device on some cars, such as Au Holdens and Falcons. The carry, however, does not have enough exposed inner cable to allow it to be used. There is 120mm available and this is fully extended but the cable cannot exert enough pressure to hold the drums, so it appears to stretch under load. I took the drums in for machining today; there is just enough thickness left for one more skim.The linings are new and the brakes do lock firmly enough so that the wheel cannot be spun by hand, but will not hold against motor power. Only 14 days until my new Omni cable arrives.

Thought it was worth a shot.

Cool Omni brake cables

Sorry for the delay in replying; the Omni cables arrived but are completely different. The AU SK410 must be a later model than the Bedford/Holden scurry. The van is now registered since late December. The handbrake issue was overcome by utilising a feature of the electronic motor controller. The AXE7235 (72v 350 amps ) controller has a half power connector which I have linked to the handbrake on switch. This is also beneficial for another dangerous situation, which is controller full power lock on. It happened once and between the handbrake and footbrake it stopped allowing time to activate the BRB (big red button) emergency disconnect before the motor poured out the magic smoke. The issue was the throttle 0 to 5K rheostat which decided to short under full load. Similar situation to 3-4 years ago when some USA Toyota's decided to go full throttle.
